Natasha Williams Goddard Named to Lawyers of Color’s 2014 Hot List
Natasha Williams Goddard has been named to Lawyers of Color’s Second Annual Hot List, which recognizes early- to mid-career minority attorneys working as in-house counsel, government attorneys, and law firm associates and partners.
Honorees will be profiled in Lawyers of Color’s Hot List 2014 Issue (July 2014). The Eastern Region honorees will also be feted at a reception hosted by Sullivan & Cromwell July 17th.
Natasha represents leading investment and commercial banks in corporate finance transactions, with a focus on equity securities and leveraged finance transactions involving high yield debt securities and bank lending. Recently, Natasha served on Cahill deal teams that advised the lead underwriters in the initial public offerings of PBF Logistics and Envision Healthcare and the debt financing sources in the acquisition of TMS International by The Pritzker Organization.
The honorees were chosen through a two-pronged process. The selection committee spent months reviewing nominations and researching bar association publications and legal blogs in order to identify promising candidates. Nominations from mentors, peers, and colleagues were accepted. The selection committee also made editorial picks of attorneys who had noteworthy accomplishments, especially those active in legal pipeline initiatives.
Lawyers of Color was initially founded as On Being A Black Lawyer but now also produces publications for lawyers of South Asian American, Pacific Asian American, Hispanic, and Native American heritage. LOC has been recognized by the American Bar Association, National Black Law Students Association, and National Association of Black Journalists.
